Top tips for a Highgate Home Buyers Survey


Highgate is a very affluent suburban area of north London in the boroughs of Haringey, Camden and Islington. It is an area of very large Georgian and Victorian mansion, particularly in Highgate Village, and beautiful terraces from the same period as well as Edwardian properties. It has an 18th century village feel.

There are also some significant blocks of flats, including the Art Deco Cholmeley Lodge on the corner of Highgate Hill and Cholmeley Park, and the two Grade I-listed modernist Highpoint blocks, by the architect Berthold Lubetkin, in North Hill.

The area known as the “The Miltons” east of Archway Road – Milton Park, Milton Avenue and Milton Road – has many large red brick terrace houses.

There are many decent postwar flats in the Shepherd’s Hill area – blocks such as Altior Court, Imperial Court, Fitzroy Court and Stanhope House.

Hampstead Lane and Highgate Hill contain the red brick Victorian buildings of Highgate School and its adjacent Chapel of St Michael. The school has played a paramount role in the life of the village and has existed on its site since its founding was permitted by letters patent from Queen Elizabeth I in 1565.

New build developments include One Highgate in Cholmeley Park which has 2 and 3-bedroom flats built in a period style in keeping with the area and The Winchester, which is a development of one, two, three and four bedroom flats above the former Winchester pub in Archway Road.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Highgate area accompany the main Archway Road, also affecting roads nearby such as Church Road and Talbot Road.
Properties in some areas of Highgate are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Milton Road noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
Properties in various parts of Highgate, including streets such as Milton Road and Hornsey Lane Gardens, may well be affected by the Crossrail 2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.

LondonMiddlesex is a county located in south east of England, however many parts of Middlesex are now commonly known as part of Greater London, with small sections in neighbouring counties.

Strictly speaking Middlesex as a concept is only kept in existence by many people continuing to name it as a county on postal addresses and other contributors such as Middlesex County Cricket Club, whose home ground is at Lord's in St John's Wood, just outside Central London. It is still loved despite it not having any form of administrative function etc.

People hearing about Middlesex assume it was/is a large county because of the amount of Greater London territory (West and North London and Westminster, with the Thames as its southern boundary) which lies within its borders. It is actually the second smallest county in the UK. Middlesex was established in the Anglo-Saxon system from the territory of the Middle Saxons. The largely low-lying county's soil is dominated by clay in its north and alluvium on gravel in its south.

Middlesex contains locations as diverse as Teddington (where the tidal Thames normally finishes), Enfield, Notting Hill, Ickenham, Ealing (where the famous film studios which produced so much early film comedy still exists), Hampstead and Southall.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Highgate, incredibly important.

How long does a RICS Building Survey take?

RICS Surveyors often only have one or two inspections a day to ensure they allocate adequate time to assess a property for its defects and issues.

On average our surveyors will spend two to three hours on a standard sized home to complete the full Level 3 RICS Building Survey, however, this can vary for a number of reasons.

It may be that there has been major works done to the property or a major defect is discovered and requires further investigation or access to all areas of the property is not immediately available. This is why our surveyors do not operate with time constraints – they stay on site as long as they need to complete the full inspection.
